Roughly translated Chicha Morada means purple brew or purple drink. Known as Peru's national drink the history of Chicha dates back to the pre-Inca periods and is still made today using the same methods. The purple corn (Zea Mays) grows only in Peru and can be found in various sizes and colours. We import only the best quality corn from Puno and Arequipa, where the rich volcanic soil produces Anthocynins, the pigment compounds responsible for the corn's vibrant colour. Rich in Antioxidants and vitamins, AMAIZE Chicha Morada is a secret blend of corn, lime, pineapple, apple, clove, cinnamon and organic unrefined cane sugar.
Since the beginning it has been our mission to be committed to supporting sustainable practices to protect the environment. We believe that what you put into your body is important, so that's why we use only natural produce in our drinks. Here at AMAIZE we're proud of our no added nonsense ethics, zero plastics as much as possible and great quality fresh products. All made from scratch in our 5 star rated kitchens,
